I spend too much time looking at mostly plastic people in candid photos and on social media because of this job. I’m used to being hyperaware of the changes various people have made through plastic surgery, Botox, fillers, etc. I always forget how friggin’ obvious the work is in motion though. Take Kylie Jenner, aka Uncanny Valley Jenner. In Instagrams especially, Kylie can look especially cartoonish, because it’s a combination of all of her tweaking plus IG filters and such. But in this video… let’s just say I was not prepared for how her face looks like a CGI creation. Kylie and her friend Jordyn Woods answered questions they got on Twitter, and they talk about babies and getting their bodies back and more:
The headline here is Kylie talking about how her body changed with pregnancy, giving birth and what it’s like now that she’s several months postpartum. She says, in part:
“I feel like people think that I bounced back super fast, which I guess I did… people can get the wrong idea on Instagram sometimes. My boobs are defiantly three times the size, which bothers me. I have stretch marks on my boobs. My stomach isn’t the same, my waist isn’t the same, my butt’s bigger, my thighs [are] bigger. And honestly, I’m finding I have to change my style a little because nothing in my closet fits me from before…[I’ve] planned my first workout on Monday. I really want to get my core back. I feel like I have fake abs now, it’s just like, genetics. But I want real abs. I know I can have a super fit body. And just for my health — I want to do this. I want to feel good.”
I mean… I don’t hate that Kylie is telling us a bit about the realities of what pregnancy did to her body. It’s a contrast from the more perfect images she does put on social media. I also appreciate that she acknowledges that her body handled the pregnancy and birth a lot better because she’s only 20 years old. Chances are, you’ll be able to “bounce back” a lot faster and with relative ease when you’re young… and when you have access to good medical care and plastic surgery.
